It was private, really good
The prices though is expensive, really and didn't look like 5 stars, and so I didn't like there
Good neighborhood Large room Toilet and shower separate Helpful staff Free breakfast was good
The bed was uncomfortable and I couldn't find even one decent pillow.
Very good. More than just a continental breakfast. 2 kinds of cereal, oatmeal packets. 2 kinds of juice, toast, several coffee choices, hot chocolate.
Parking included. Location. Good size bathroom.
We walked in and the room smelled musty. In need of some renovations. We were 5 people and only 2 chairs to sit on at the dining table. Beds and pillows were uncomfortable. Pullout sofa was a challenge....
Located on main road and near to bus stand
Very unsupportive staff. We had a feeling that we are a problem creator for the staff and unwanted guest. The wifi connectivity was very poor and actually never worked. Which is gross deviation from agreed facility. Sometimes some traveller may arrive few hrs early or lave few hrs late than hotel check in or check out timing depending upon flight time or train time. In such case there is no waiting lounge is available and we had to wait outside on road.
We stayed in the family suite, which was very spacious and comfortable. Great location close to fabulous restaurants!
When I arrived Motel charge full amount of one week , so I could not move
Excellent area, close to everything
Location was close to IHOP for breakfast.
Rooms had a bad odor. Air conditioner/Fan did not work. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Complimentary breakfast only offered cold cereal.
No coffee makers in the room. Morning front desk woman was rude. And the cleaning lady was trying to take out our towels when i was still getting dressed to leave, even though I told her it would be 5 minutes she still came right into the room.
Very high price, room old and dirty.
Two full size beds and one pull out sofa bed. Lots of blankets and pillow. Very nice room. Lots of parking free wifi
It was cheap, nice location, next to chessnut street full of every kind of restaurants. Manager seems to be nice guy, but...
Manager seems to be nice guy but when we asked him to order for us taxi at 5 a.m. next day, he told us that he cannot order a taxi, but he can order a shuttle, which is more confident at the morning because at the morning is hard to find taxi. We paid 20 dollars for shuttle booking and another 40 dollar we paid in the car. But at the morning shuttle was late 20 minutes and there was a lot of taxis stoping to pick up us to airport for just 55 dollar in much better conditions and faster. In a shuttle we were sitting with another 5 persons like a sardines.
The Staff was nice and helpful.
The facilities are old, furniture is more than vintage. It needs to be refreshed. We didn't get the best value for the price we paid.
Location is the only thing the Surf Motel currently has going for it.
Where to start… the queen bed's (not king as advertised) bedding (blanket in particular) had seen better days. The pillows were hard, the towels ragged, no working hair dryer, the clock & phone had dirt caked on it. At over $250/night, I expected better!
Pleasant staff We could park there from the morning (before we checked in)
Poor wifi range
Location, close to Chesnut with great nightlife, restaurants. Gernerally, this is a standard motel. Recommendable.
The front desk staff were very cooperative and nice, the location is perfect
The maid uses the towels to clean the sink which made me sick , the smell of the carpet in the room is so baaad and the smell of the bath room too
The location in the Marina is very convenient for an early morning run.
The breakfast is horrible (orange juice is 100% chemical and the coffee can barely be swallowed). The cleanliness of the rooms is not good but mostly because everything is old and now very difficult to clean. However the cupboards should be thoroughly dusted. beware of putting any dark clothes in there they could come back white with dust!
I liked the location. It was near the marina area and one block from Chestnut which had lots of shops and restaurants. It was not far from the main parts of San Fran including the hospital that we had to be at. The management seemed nice but see my comment under what I didn't like. Although small, the rooms seemed clean at least. Overall, the motel was functional and, in a pinch, I would use it again.
It was drab. It was a parking lot (without enough parking places for the number of rooms) surrounded by the rooms. There was no green space, no pool and no place to sit down outside the rooms. The room was OK but small. The bathtub was slippery as if they had pulled out a non-slip mat. We had two rooms for two days. The charge was $970 which seemed like a lot for what we got but it might have been par for San Fran. The air conditioning didn't work well in my room and I commented on it the morning of the second day. They said they would do something about it but it didn't look like they did because the room was hot the second night too. The continental breakfast was in a tiny room and consisted of toast, cold cereal, some apples, juice and coffee. One time they had some Danish but not much and not particularly good and I didn't see it the next day.
Location was the only thing
Everything besides location and staffs were terrible. Breakfast room has only one table..it accommodates all the hotel guests.. imagine how small is the breakfast room, you cant put in even a ping pong table. Breakfast was horrible..fruits dont get refilled. toilet seat looks so ugly ... color chipped away. there was a fly in my bathroom. Try flushing the toilet and you ll be surprised.! Seeing is believing... Never shall i stay there again !..
Location is amazing but a very basic motel.
It was quite noisey as it's near a busy road.
